Subject: My Favorite AUD of this Show
There are basically three AUD recordings of this show here -- Barry Glassberg's, Steve Rolfe's (transferred by Charlie Miller), and this one (recorded by Jim Wise). I've been comparing them (spot-checking -- I haven't listened to the whole thing yet), and I like this one the best. The Glassberg recording seems to have the least audience noise, which some might like. The Rolfe comes second, but there the audience noise has a lot of individual voices punching through. This one has the true roar of the crowd, and a nice warm sound. Downloading it right now...

Update: There are a few awkward spots in the recording -- tape flips maybe -- where something is missing and the join is not done smoothly. They are:

1) The transition from Barry Glassberg's AUD to this one (at the end of Feel Like a Stranger),

2) After El Paso,

3) The transition from Birdsong to Minglewood (where the recording seems to be missing the first few notes of Minglewood),

4) After Ship of Fools,

5) After Stella Blue, and

6) Right before the encore, where the recording just starts right in at the first few notes.

All of these except the transitions to Minglewood and the encore are easily smoothed over with a crossfade, and in any case these are minor issues. All in all, this is a really great recording.
